Geoffrey Hendricks

Art Basel Miami Beach

December 6 - December 11, 2023

Geoffrey Hendricks (1931-2018) was a core participant in the Fluxus group of the mid-to-late-20th Century, conceiving and performing such events as the Flux Divorce, and numerous Flux Masses beginning in the 1970s. For over 50 years, Hendricks also had a rigorous conceptual solo practice, creating Happenings, art objects, and installations involving nature, the body, and ideas of chance.

His most famous works were images of the sky, earning him the moniker “Cloudsmith.”  Hendricks, from the 1960s until his death, painted the sky repeatedly on everyday objects, from a pair of work boots to a VW Beetle (driven across Europe) and his own body. He also made hundreds of watercolors of the sky from his home in New York City and during his travels around the globe.

A leader in the queer community, Hendricks helped found the Archive Project of Visual AIDS in the 1980s, and worked collaboratively at different times with partners Stephen Varble, Brian Buczak, and Sur Rodney (Sur).
